Yet another person on the UMLUG ML got 0wned by a random system cracker. For a while, I was wondering how I managed to have my machine with all its services on UMD's network for so long and come out unscathed. Then I remembered how paranoid I am, and how even I trip up my own boobie traps from time to time :P Anyway, I feel much safer behind my firewall at home.

Speaking of which, my current linux install will turn one year old in 18 hours! Not much is left of the original slackware 7.1 system except for the init scripts. The actual machine has already passed its one year birthday, I think. I had a working linux install on it for a few weeks in the beginning, before I realized that windows has to be installed first :P
